The Radisson to Host the 4th Annual Golf Classic

The 4th annual Radisson Aruba Charity Golf Classic is scheduled for March 10th, 2012, destined to collect funds for the Aruban cancer foundations and the World Childhood Foundation.

The tournament, traditionally held at Tierra Del Sol, will include an award ceremony, a charity auction with valuable offers and an elegant reception catered by Ventanas del Mar restaurant at the end of the golfing day.

Teams of 4 players are invited to sign up with Director of Resort Operations Robert Curtis and with Tierra del Sol’s Head Golf Professional Adam Williamson. Local and international companies and individuals are also invited to become golf-hole sponsors during the event.

The annual golf event is dedicated to the memory of the late Gary Jutz, who was the Radisson Aruba Resort Casino & Spa General Manager, until mid 2009, when he lost his battle with cancer.

Last year, the tournament raised a total of $20,235.78. The amount was divided among three charities, the World Childhood Foundations which works on behalf of most-often ignored and forgotten street kids, especially girls, living in institutions, including young mothers and sexually abused children. The World Childhood Foundation received $10,117.89.  Two local foundations, the Wilhelmina Kanker Fonds and the Edmund Harms Hospice Foundation, received $5,058.94 each.

Many Aruban companies were among generous local tournament players and sponsors, too numerous to mention, and the Radisson Aruba Resort Casino & Spa would like to recruit their help again, to make this year’s edition of the tournament equally successful.
